Our Programme











The programme is led by two Conductors who work alongside parents and their children during class times.

The programme is carried out in a group situation with all of our children and adults working towards the same achievement but within their own capabilities. The way in which the task is carried out could be quite different.

The children and adults are primarily motivated to work by wanting to keep up with their peers and by wanting to meet their own needs, less so by the expectation of the adults.

The Conductors work to ensure that the programmes presented are exciting and motivating for the children, they believe that children and adults learn through play experiences.

Attainable goals are set for each individual child/adult and encouragement given to make the child/adult believe that they can achieve the task.

Our children are also encouraged to attend their local pre-schools/kindergarten and schools to socialize & learn with their able-bodied peers.

 

The Work of a Conductor

  • Organise and deliver the conductive

  • Create situations and learning environments which encourage learning and progress

  • Focus on what our clients can do, and build on these abilities

  • Give clear guidance and support

  • Provide motivation to help improvements


  • Important concepts in Conductive Education:

    Daily routine:

    The programme is planned on a daily basis and focusing on the individual needs. The daily routine us structured where each of the task series are aimed at preparing for the following task and building on one another. The daily routine includes and covers all areas like task series, self-care, play activities and cognitive programmes etc.

    Group:

    The group setting is the best learning environment for the children. Greater interpersonal and social facilitation is possible in the group. The conductor uses group dynamics to motivate the group and the members of the group are able to learn from each other. Most of the activities are based on group, while focusing on individual needs. The main consideration in establishing a group is diagnosis, condition, age and cognitive level.

    Task Series:

    Task series are based on functional movements and on their elements which are practiced through a variety of activities in different positions. The conductor develops the task series to meet the individual needs and goals. It is important to provide and plan realistic and achievable tasks which help children to succeed.

    Facilitation:

    Achieve the biggest result with minimal aid.

    This is the way each child is assisted manually or verbally to successfully accomplish a task. Conductive Education uses minimalist aids. Each child receives a different type of facilitation with the goals of learning independence, experiencing success and discovering their maximum potential.

    Rhythmical Intention:

    It is a method when a participant is using speech to express and intention that is followed by a movement. Rhythmical intention is preparing the central nervous system for the action, and the motor memory is being reinforced by it.

    It is helping the activity, the focus and giving rhythm for the movements. The rhythmical intention is varied depending on the diagnosis and condition.
